Is anyone going this year, have not seen or heard much about it. There is usually talk on the forums about it but not much this year here or ytmag. Maybe not worth making the trip.

I am going. Plan to drive my Farmall H from Holyoke CO. Chapter 12 president is driving his tractor too. There will be about 20 of us driving in. I guess it depends what you want if it is worth going. I wouldn't miss it. For me it is a yearly reunion with my friends.

I am trying to get things together. It is only about a five hour drive on the two lane(old truck driver) and it is all four lane now.

I hope you can make it Kevin. The campground said that they would save me a nice secluded spot for Ginger.

I'm hoping to get a vehicle patched up well enough to go. Was hoping to go on east for a visit, but not going to happen. If my taxes come in in time, Des Moines should be no problem.

kevin, i think howard is already on the road with his tractor. probably best to check in with campground. there has been talk about camping over on the red power mag website, but i didn't pay much attention to that topic.

i'm not sure i will be there or not. we have had so much rainy weather this spring, i have never been this far behind on planting AND chopping first cutting at this date.

Yeah, I hope the farm is running itself. I have some good people looking after things. No phone calls so must be all is well. Yes, Kevin. It's a big campground. They said they would pick me out a shady secluded spot for Ginger.

I am sorry, guys, but I won't be coming to RPRU this year. My Grandmother passed away Wednesday and the funeral will be on Monday. Honestly, RPRU just does not seem that important anymore...
